Just returned from a golf trek in northwest and southwest Ireland. Outside of the golf, the highlight of our trip was Teach de Broc (pronounced choc de brock). Aoife (prounouced Afa, or Ava) and Seamus Broc are those rare innkeepers who make you feel like your welfare actually matters to them. I had a very early tee time at Ballybunion's Old Course and Aoife (who is not the regular chef) got up early and had a perfect omelet waiting for me at 6:30--she volunteered this, mind you, I never would have requested it. The rooms are airy, clean, and of good size. I had a view out my window of Ballybunion's Cashen Course. (I have better memories of that room than I do of that course.) Taking their cue from the top, everyone who works there is friendly and helpful. The food and the wine are excellent. I don't normally go out of my way to review a place, or anything, for that matter. But in this case I felt it would be a shame not to laud a place I'm absolutely sure will please anyone who goes there..
